Middle East - North Africa Film Series
Tenja (2004 / 80 mins.) - Directed by Hassan Legzouli
In his will, the head of a Moroccan family, who had immigrated to northern France in the '6Os, expresses his wish to be buried in his native village. When he dies, his son Nordine (Roschdy Zem) has no choice but to accompany his father's casket on its final journey, since in a traditional tribal system, the father's word is law. This beautifully observed road movie traces a journey that begins as obligation and ends as revelation.
